Washington [US], August 5 (ANI): Rebel Wilson is all set to star in 'Double Fault', a tennis comedy in development at Paramount Pictures' Players label.

Recently, Wilson was seen in Netflix's teen comedy "Senior Year," in which she played a 37-year-old who wakes up from a coma and returns to high school to get her diploma.
Prior to "Senior Year," Wilson hadn't starred in a movie since 2019's 'Isn't It Romantic', a romantic comedy that parodies stereotypical Hollywood meet-cutes. She was in high demand that year, also co-starring with Anne Hathaway in the con-artist comedy 'The Hustle', lending her vocal talents as Jennyanydots in Tom Hooper's 'Cats' adaptation and appearing in Taika Waititi's war dramedy 'Jojo Rabbit', as per Variety.
